Shadwell Stable’s Tajaaweed, winner of the Grade III
Arlington Handicap as the local prep for the Arlington Million, is set to make
his second consecutive start in the race, a year after finishing sixth beaten
more than seven lengths by Debussy.
Trainer Dan Peitz was out of town Tuesday morning, and
assistant Jock McNeil was reserved with his comments today.
“Dan will be here later today, but all I can say is that I
wouldn’t want to trade places with anyone else,” said the soft-spoken McNeil.
